Penicilin Residue Rapid Test Device is a rapid, one step test for the qualitative detection of Penicilin in honey samples. It takes only approx. 5~10 min.
Penicilin(PEN), one kind of broad-spectrum antibiotic, is widely used in different lines of poultry, cattle, agriculture and bee-keeping for its excellent antibacterial and pharmacokinetic prop-erties. However, the nervous system will be affected. What is worse, allergic shock may be induced. Therefore, it is possible that Penicilin residues, after use in illegal practice, may lead to a risk for consumers.
PRINCIPLE OF THE TEST
The test utilizes monoclonal gold conjugated antibody as a signal reagent and a Penicilin protein conjugate as a solid phase cap-ture reagent.If Penicilin is present in the sample it will therefore bind with the conjugate and will be labelled. As the sample mi-grates along the membrane and reaches the capture zone an excess of labelled antibody will bind to the immobilised antigen so that no visible line is produced. The bound conjugate will then bind to the antibodies in the control zone producing a visible control line. A single control line on the membrane is a positive result, while two visible lines in the capture and control zones indicates negative. However, if an excess of unlabelled Penicilin is not present, a weak line may be produced in the capture zone, indicating an inconclusive result.
